This year we travelled the globe with True Music Studios. As 2022 comes to a close, we look back at some of the artists from each city currently setting their scene on fire, highlighted and discussed by the contributors we’ve worked with along the way.
In 2022, as more lockdown restrictions were lifted, we were able to get back on the road and do what we love doing most. This year, we had True Music Studios shows across Medellín, Nairobi, Yaounde, Luanda, Granada, Amsterdam and Angola. Alongside this, we asked contributors to take a look at the history of the genres we were exploring from their retrospective cities, highlighting the legacy leaders whilst exploring some of the people currently holding the torch for these sounds, showcasing these on our True Music playlist. So to round off the year, we’re shining a light on a few selects from each city and their best tracks from 2022 whilst looking back at the articles we shared this year.
Catherine Assogo is an entrepreneur from Cameroun. Candela Scorp is a journalist and club promoter from Granada. Rofhiwa Maneta is a freelance arts and culture journalist from Cape Town. Eduardo Pérez Waasdorp is a past director of DJ Mag Spain, and an expert on all things Spanish techno. Tash LC is a London DJ and selector heading up her own label and club night Club Yeke.
Without further ado, here are eight tracks from the artists setting these cities alight in 2022.
